Tell me why you want to work here answer

  1. 1. Tell me why you want to work here answer Interviewers almost always ask why you want to work at the organization. It's one of the most frequently asked interview questions, and saying that the job sounds great or the company is wonderful isn't enough. When interviewing prospective employees, employers are eager to determine which candidates really want the job and would invest genuine effort in bettering the company, and which just want a job, regardless of what it is. Though it seems like an easy question, many employers will ask, "Why do you want to work here?," in order to gauge your level of interest and how much you have learned about the company.
  2. 2. How to Answer the Job Interview Question: "Why Do You Want to Work Here?“ The best way to answer this question is to be prepared and knowledgeable about the company. Spend some time researching the company (the About Us section of the employer's website is a good place to start) so you can talk about the benefits of working for this employer. Check out the company's LinkedIn page, as well. If you have a connection at the company, ask them if you can get some insight into what the company is seeking in an ideal employee.
  3. 3. Turn Your Cover Letter into Talking Points for an Interview • The more specifics you can provide, the better. But, don't just talk about the benefits and perks of working there. What you should really try to emphasize is how the company's mission, values, and work align with your own goals. • Compare Your Goals to the Job • Compare your goals with the objectives of the company and the position, then reiterate why you would be an asset to the employer. Let the interviewer know what you can do for the company, if you get a job offer. • Even though the question is about why you want to work there, you still need to convince the interviewer that hiring you will benefit the company.
  4. 4. • Here are sample answers you can use to frame your own response: • This company is internationally known for its (widgets), and my experience in the (marketing/planning/production/etc.) of (widgets) has me intrigued by the opportunity this position presents. • The businesses in this area are known for their commitment to the community, and I would like the opportunity to participate in making this a better place to live. • Not only are you a leader in the industry, with strong financials and a great business model, but I've seen on your Facebook page that users of your product are hugely enthusiastic. In fact, I'm a product user myself, and am eager to be a part of the product's development and distribution. • Your company's reputation is so stellar. Former colleagues of mine work here, and I've seen how much they value the company's willingness to let employees pitch big ideas and have an active leadership role in new initiatives. • I am a (widget) connoisseur, and would love the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for (widgets) with customers.
